The queen cradles Prince William’s 11-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte in her lap, while Mia Tindall — 2-year-old daughter of the queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall— stands clutching the monarch’s black handbag.

Another image shows the queen on the steps of Windsor Castle with four of her beloved dogs: corgis Willow and Holly and dorgis Vulcan and Candy.
